The Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation held the Eighth Annual Charitable Golf Tournament at Oakwood Golf Course in Houston on Sat., June 8. Thirty-eight teams participated in the 18-hole two-person scramble, and almost $15,000 was raised for the Foundation by the tournament.
The tournament had tee times at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. with prizes awarded to the top three teams in four categories—Championship Flight; A-Flight; B-Flight and C-Flight. Golfers had the opportunity to win a new Chevrolet Cruze sponsored by Sturgeon Chevrolet-Buick Company with a hole-in-one on hole five at the course.
Winners of the Championship Flight were Justin Kensinger and Ryan O’Grady who shot a 56, followed by Darren Petrus and Scott Kelly with a 57 for second place and Ron Murray and Chris Keefer with a score of 59 in third place.
A-Flight winners were Michael McDaniel and Michelle McDaniel in first place with a 66, (tiebreaker rules were enforced for teams shooting the same score), followed by Brian Barnett and Jack Barnett in second with a 66, and third place winners, Dusty Schober and Scott Manier with a 66.
Winners of the B-Flight were Steve Pritchard and Sandy Pendergrass with a 70. Finishing second were Jerry Armstrong and Mary Armstrong also with a 71. Dr. Charles Mueller and Dr. Joe Richardson, also with a 71, came in third.
C-Flight winners were Mason Bowman and Jeremy Looper with a 78. Cliff Hansen and Danny Backus shot an 81 for second place, and Kirby Holmes and Austin Holmes finished third with an 82.
First and second place winners in all flights received cash prizes and trophies. Third place winners in the Championship flight received a cash prize, and the remaining flights received gift cards.
Michelle McDaniel and Jeremy Looper won the longest putt contests for female and male players. McDaniel also won the women’s longest drive, and Ron Murray won the men’s longest drive.
A “Vegas Par 3” closest to the pin contest was hosted and sponsored by Jay Loveland and Wehr Motors. Winning the contest was Brian Barnett with a hole-in-one.
“The Big Advantage” on the fourth hole allowed golfers to move up to within 150 yards of the putting green and was sponsored by Wehr Motors. The game could reduce golf scores and included a closest to the pin contest. Gary York was the winner of “The Big Advantage”.
Also of note, Dusty Schober had a hole-in-one on hole five at the course, but it was in the second half of his round, so he did not qualify to win the new car.
According to Jay Gentry, president of the TCMH Healthcare Foundation, the funds generated by the golf tournament will be used to fund scholarships for healthcare related educational fields and to provide resources for enhancing patient care through capital projects.
“We filled all of the available team slots in the morning and afternoon rounds, and we received numerous sponsorships from individuals and businesses,” Gentry said, adding that a few late entry teams had to be turned away from the tournament.
Gentry also thanked the numerous volunteers and the staff at Oakwood for their time and efforts on behalf of the Foundation’s tournament.
“Some of our winners also donated their winnings back to the Foundation, something that we greatly appreciate,” Gentry said. “The Foundation is a local charity and all of the money we receive for the Foundation will remain in the county.”
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation is the non-profit organization with a mission to ensure the quality of healthcare services for children, women, and men at Texas County Memorial Hospital. Funding for the Foundation comes from grateful patients and their families, community members and groups, and businesses that value healthcare in our area. A board of community leaders from across the county directs the TCMH Healthcare Foundation and the funds held by the Foundation.
“Once again, this tournament has been very successful for the Healthcare Foundation,” Gentry said.
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation plans to hold the golf tournament fundraiser again on June 14, 2014.
